    I would propose a twist.
    Michał Sędziwój (Michael Sendivogius)  was a real figure, he lived in the 16th/17th century.
    But he was an alchemist and a good one. We could imagine that he had successfully created the Philosopher's Stone. With it's help he could still be alive in 1920's and he would certainly oppose the Ancient One.
    So the investigator could be named "Michael Sendivogius" with "The Alchemist" as his profession.

    Haunster reacted to Constrictor in Masks Review - such potential...but...   
    I've played three game so far. Two vs Antediluvium and one vs Nyaralothotep. 1-1 vs Ante and 1-0 vs Nyar.

    Resources: Not a bad mechanic. It allows you to spend extra attention to healing an investigator that may die off with resting alone. The extra successes on acquire assets is also very welcome when playing lower influence characters. They can now get a critical 3 or 4 cost item that really helps their character concept out without praying for double success on two dice + debt to get it.

    Character stories: Love them. They add mini quests to each character and really flesh them out. The rewards are usually very nice and worth having (with some exceptions). I did notice that some of them are stronger and some weaker and that's to be expected. I'll always play with them going forward. Great content add for someone like me who owns every expansion.

    New ancient ones: Both very fun. Nyar is the stand out, with each mystery being a 3 piece adventure. Solid here.

    New investigators: I do full random investigators (no choice at all), so I've only played Calvin so far, who came in to replace a defeated investigator. He was very useful as he was able to full heal one of my strongest investigators who was down 6 total health/sanity and he completed his personal story right away on his first turn. The rest look interesting and I look forward to playing as them.

    Campaign: Can't say much about it as I haven't played it yet. Setting it up now and will attempt it. It looks interesting and I believe I will enjoy it but we shall see.

    New locations: 8 locations each for spaces is very nice as it is double what we got in other expansions, bringing the total up to 48 from 40 cards for each space on the board. Nicely increases variety.

    New spell: Really nice spell for a combat caster. More combat spells are welcome.

    Other new cards that I've used so far are great as well.

    Overall, a great expansion. If you enjoy the game, you'll enjoy this.

    Haunster reacted to GBI in [Future] Mask's of Nyarlathotep will be the last expansion ?   
    If they close this line, they will lose customers, I am not interested in any one of the other "featured games", not even AH as is it IMHO inferior to EH in nearly every aspect. If they release more EH expansions I will buy them and many others will too I am sure. Why end a franchise that is successful? Because AH had the same number of expansions? What kind of reason is that?

    What do you think the following statement means in the MoN product literature.  In particular, I am interested in what is meant by "The investigators must work to stop the that cults spring up".  It sounds to me like "cults" will spawn like clues or gates.  Other thoughts on this?

    Given that the New England area is a major focus of Lovecraft themes, I want a big box expansion coving this area in my favorite game which is EH not AH.  I predict that it will be the most popular EH big box expansion.

    And since there is a hint about this in Dreamlands - if there is a sideboard in this expansion - it will most definitely be in Asia.
     
    Seriously though,  it seems like they read my thoughts and reflected on my wishes what I would want to add to the game and then decided to give it to me all at once. Guess that's what true bliss in paradise feels like.

    Also, stop talking about wraps, people, please. - If this is going to be the end, we'll be told, but as long as we are not...
    We can expand this beautiful game some more, as far as I'm concerned.

    Arkham and Eldritch are separate games so I don't understand your argument.
    It's as if you said there is no point in making Eldritch Horror game at all because it's topic has been already covered by Arkham Horror.

    They need 1 more big box expansion and location would be Arkham.
    What would be a better expansion to finish the product then to visit the place from where all the horrors started
     
    And then to go with Ancient One's packs. 
    We have enough investigators, artifacts, assets, conditions etc... But ancient ones? It's never enough

    Haunster got a reaction from eagletsi111 in How do most people play with the Mythos Card - Difficulty   
    I load balance the difficulty by card color (currently using something akin to a bell curve....i.e. mostly standard cards).  If there are nine yellow cards, I would use 2 hard, 5 standard, and 2 easy.  I like knowing that there is a mix of card difficulty.

    Enjoying Dreamlands at the moment as I see it as the best so far but thought it could be nice with a thread to talk about possible future big (or small) box expansions. 
    Any confirmation from FFG on what the future holds? I can't see them NOT make a few more boxes at least. 
    My biggest wish right now is a big box Arkham expansion, unfolding the streets and houses of Arkham on a sideboard - wouldn't that be awesome? 
    Second on my list is a side board taking us underground to some crypts - like in the Lovecraft story about the lost city. 
    What do you think?

    Haunster reacted to Julia in Abbreviated Gameplay   
    Problem is that the difficulty of the game has no linear growth, so that removing one mystery and shortening consequently the doom track couldn't work: the more you go on with the game, the easier is to have a greater number of gates open and monsters around, hence in the first part doom advances rather slowly, and in the second part it could advance incredibly quickly. I'd say the suggested modifications could work as long as you consider the number of investigators playing increased by 1 when resolving the Mythos phase, mysteries and rumors.
